The same photo may exist in multiple folders and the file-names may be different.

If you haven't changed the EXIF data inside the photo, and the date+time that the photo was taken is still intact, you might be able to use a program to rename the file to have the date+time put at the beginning of the filename.

This can help to make each picture have a unique filename.

But also, it would let you copy all the photos to fewer folders and have all the photos put in chronological order to when the picture was taken.

Then you can browse through . . . and all the "same pictures" should be grouped together.

To rename JPG files this way I use a program like NAMEXIF.

To rename RAW files this way I use Adobe Lightroom Classic.

Take care & Happy Shooting!
